Description:
Stefano Magnasco (Genoa circa 1635–1672) The Penitent Magdalene, oil on canvas, 120.5x88cm, framed Provenance: sale, Wannenes, Genoa, 27 November 2012, lot 144 (as Flemish Painter, 17th Century); Private collection, Rome We are grateful to Anna Orlando for suggesting the attribution and dating the present painting to circa 1656–60. This Magdalene is typical of the female figures painted by Stefano Magnasco and it can be compared to the Susanna and the Elders conserved in a Genoese private collection (see A. Orlando, Stefano Magnasco e la cerchia di Valerio Castello, Cinisello Balsamo 2001, fig. 63). The present canvas is dated to around 1656-60 when Magnasco\’s style was closest to the pictorial vibrancy of Peter Paul Rubens, who during these years painted his Susanna and the Elders now in the Galleria Borghese, Rome. Indeed, in 1656 Stefano Magnasco was also in Rome. Rubens however had already worked in Stefano Magnasco´s native city, Genoa, and his characteristic style of colourism had entered the vernacular of the local school of painting. Stefano Magnasco, father of Alessandro, was born in 1635 in Genoa and he trained in the studio of Valerio Castello. After a brief period during his youth in Rome he returned to Genoa. Here, the artist established his studio producing paintings that reveal a range of influences. Stefano Magnasco is an eclectic painter who used the brilliant colours of Castello without excluding the sensitivity of Van Dyck\’s Genoese period, and who knew how to combine the serene and solemn gestures of Roman painting with the exuberance of Rubens.

Lot Notes
A Genoese painter by birth and training, Stefano Magnascotravelled to Rome in around 1655, where he worked until 1660. Herehis style developed particularly under the influence of Pietro daCortona and Nicolas Poussin. The present work is an example ofMagnasco's mature style, after he had fully assimilated these Romaninfluences, and Dottssa. Anna Orlando has suggested a date ofaround 1665, following the artist's return to Genoa. The facialtypes, the handling of the drapery and the landscape of the presentwork may all be compared with another work by the artist from thesame period, The Sacrifice of Isaac (see A. Orlando, StefanoMagnasco e la cerchia di Valerio Castello, Milan, 2001, p. 117, no.38).

Description:
measurements 122 by 172 cm.; 48 by 67¾ in. description signed with initials lower centre: sm oil on canvas this lot contains 1 item(s). stefano magnasco was the father of the landscape-painter alessandro magnasco, called il lissandrino, and was a pupil of valerio castello. his style - and indeed the style of this painting in particular - successfully combined the palette and fluid handling of paint typical of castello with a classical influence. in this signed work his landscape seems to have been inspired by the works of pietro da cortona and his contemporaries, which magnasco must have studied in rome during his sojourn there in the latter half of the 1650s. anna orlando (see literature) dates the present work to the artist's maturity, that is to circa 1660. literature: a. orlando, stefano magnasco e la cerchia di valerio castello, cinisello balsamo 2001, cat. no. 26 (forthcoming publication).
